Subject: 90% Golden Gate
This rarely looks like motion film. Usually, it looks like a series of still shots.

Unedited or out of order, with no title cards, this silent collection shows a house demolition and landslide, a hard-hat diver preparing to go down and do something or other, and the bridge as just the towers, towers and cables, mostly built -- and then jumps back to what I eventually figured was the ground-breaking ceremony.

On the whole, nothing novel or revealing.
